Bee Swarm Disrupts Fundraising Walk

Geez I hope this doesn't happen to us......

Bee Swarm Disrupts Fundraising Walk
LIGONIER, Ind. (May 21) - A swarm of honeybees temporarily disrupted a charity fundraising event, but no one reported being stung.

Authorities evacuated the area Saturday after the swarm of about 3,000 bees emerged from the woods around the West Noble High School football field, where 700 people were participating in a fundraising walk for the American Cancer Society.

The bees landed on a large umbrella shading the campsite of one of the more than 60 teams taking part in the 24-hour event in the town, 40 miles northwest of Fort Wayne.

A local beekeeper, Matt Green, used a smoke machine to calm the bees and coax them into a beehive he brought to the field. The event was delayed about 45 minutes.

Most of you know about the Avon Walk that I'm participating in in just a few weeks! Well, I've been training for the event, and I'm just a little behind schedule but yesterday I walked 13 miles with my friend Sumi. (Thanks, Sumi!)

Here is a photo of some tree blossoms that I took with my phone. It was such a beautiful morning! The walk was fantastic. I love spring.

As of today I have reached 94% of my fundraising goal! Yay!!!! Go to www.sarahbellis.com/avonwalk/ to learn more about it.

Here are some recent photos of the "kids". Elvis likes to use this laundry bag as a makeshift tent, similar to a misquito net. You gotta watch out for the west nile virus!

This is Monkey just being her sweet usual self.
